Fantastic food, incredible atmosphere and friendly staff. I frequent this restaurant as the meals are always consistant and the prices are great. Dennis is an incredible chef and his kitchen is buzzing with talent. Don't miss out.

The food is very good, They seem able to make any sauce with any type of pasta though they don't seem to stray very far from a few pasta and fish dishes. The wait staff is generally pretty knowledgeable about wine pairings. Very clean place with a very nice little (full) bar. The wait staff is very attentive. If you... More

Never a bad meal. The best restaurant in town. Not one restaurant even comes close. The owners down to the busboys are all quality

Can be crowded and a little noisy, but the food here is very consistent and always very good. All the ingredients are local, highlighting what's fresh and seasonal. It's our 'go to' restaurant in Petaluma for any/all occasions.

I very much enjoyed my pan-fried fish with lemon sauce and vegetables. Good service, nice room, and clearly a popular place (almost full for lunch on a rainy Tuesday in January.

I drive my Mom from Sonoma to Petaluma to Kaiser on a regular basis. I try to schedule her appointments or lab work so that we can go to lunch after. Yesterday I decided to go into downtown Petaluma (not exactly the direction home) and eat at Cucina Paradiso. We had a fabulous lunch! I had the penne with sausage... More

Is it just me or are the prices at Cucina rising lately. Special salad and bowl of pasta for over $30? If I had the special Petrale and Insalata Paradiso over $40? Dinner for 2 with 2 cocktails, 1 glass of wine, Amaretto and 1 dessert over $111.00. I've always felt Cucina was a good value, but now it's on... More

When we found a bakery/restaurant we had eaten in two years ago closed, we walked into Cucina Paradiso pretty much by accident; it was after 1:00 PM and there were several occupied tables. For lunch we had a sausage panino and chicken salad. Both were outstanding - really memorable! And service could not have been better. Our only regret is... More
